Safe Amalgam Removal | Holistic Dentistry NJ - Dr. Philip Memoli

Pediatric tooth decay is on the rise. Some research suggests that systemic causes—including radiation exposure, hormonal abnormalities, and foreign proteins in food—are to blame. Hypomineralization, caused mainly by a diet inadequate in minerals, increases a child’s susceptibility to decay.

Tooth decay in children falls into distinct categories:

  • Baby teeth versus adult teeth
  • Anterior (front) vs. posterior (back) tooth patterns

Holistic Paediatric Dentistry in Berkeley Heights, New Jersey

by @holisticdentistry - Oct 13, 2017

Childhood, when permanent (“adult”) teeth began to grow, is the best time to teach youngsters good oral hygiene habits and how to make wise nutritional choices. By learning how to prevent compromising the enamel, the hard substance that covers teeth, children can minimize and perhaps prevent the dental problems that plague many adults.

Faq Childhood Dental Problems And Pediatric Dentistry | Dr. Philip Memoli | Call (908) 464-9144

The prevalence of pediatric tooth decay—sometimes, aggressive decay—is rising, even among children who have nutritious diets that are low on sugar. Research points toward systemic problems, caused by factors such as radiation exposure, hormonal abnormalities, reaction to foreign proteins in foods, and/or improper mineralization (hypomineralization).

faq-childhood-dental-problems-and-pediatric-dentistry

There are specific patterns of tooth decay. The age of the patient is sometimes a factor in these patterns.

  • Baby teeth vs. adult teeth. Baby teeth are formed before birth; their development and health is subject to maternal nutrition (or malnutrition), so it is possible for a child to be predisposed to decay issues before ever eating or drinking. 
  • Anterior (front) vs. posterior (back) tooth patterns. The anterior teeth generally develop first; problems with these teeth may have begun during a child’s first three years.

What Are the Facts About Tooth Decay in Children? Dr. Philip Memoli

Tooth decay, known medically as dental caries, happens to every person in every age group. Children, however, are a special focus for the prevention of tooth decay. Outside of very rare instances in medical history, children are the only people who can grow new teeth. 

Dr

Proponents of this causal theory stress that:

  •          Under the acid theory, any exposure to sugar in the mouth would raise susceptibility to decay.
  •          Decay is a complicated process that exhibits both local and systemic factors; the latter appears to be more important.
  •          Some studies indicate that certain systemic factors, such as blood calcium and phosphate levels, affect the susceptibility to decay.

 Our next article examines the patterns and possible causes of childhood tooth decay.

Taking Your First Steps Toward Safe, Comprehensive Amalgam Removal | Dr. Philip Memoli

At The Center for Systemic Dentistry, we employ a state-of-the-art protocol for safe removal of mercury amalgam. Our protocol offers maximum health protection, identifying and minimizing the risk of pain or sensitivity.

first-steps-safe-amalgam-removal-2.jpg

Our dentists select a restoration type and material for each affected tooth, based on the results of the comprehensive exam. There are four types of restorations:

  • Type I: Direct Restoration. For a patient with good dental health and a strong tooth, restoration is made in one visit with a direct filling material.
  • Type II: Inlay Restoration. A tooth that is mostly sound may still require an inlay to restore structural strength.
  • Type III: Onlay Restoration. A mostly sound tooth with a chewing surface (cusp) that requires restoration.
  • Type IV: Crown Restoration. For a structurally weak tooth that has loss of one or more cusps.

What Does the Research Say About Mercury Toxicity?

Any given person may be more resistant or more susceptible to mercury poisoning, depending on that person’s individual biology. Each body possesses three systems to deal with foreign substances: the immune, detoxification, and elimination systems.

What Are the Symptoms of Mercury Toxicity? Dr. Philip Memoli New Jersey |USA

What Are the Symptoms of Mercury Toxicity?

Mercury, the only metallic element that is a liquid under standard temperature and pressure conditions, is widely utilized in many industries and processes. 

symptoms-mercury-toxicity

 

Mercury toxicity symptoms are many; mercury poisoning takes a heavy toll on the body, affecting the neurological and central nervous systems, as well as the gastrointestinal, immune, neuromuscular, and cardiovascular systems. Major organs, such as the brain, liver, and kidneys, also suffer as a result of mercury toxicity.

A wide variety of symptoms is attributed to toxicity resulting from mercury amalgam. This list includes but is not limited to:

  • Headache, fatigue, loss of concentration, irritability, depression, insomnia, and dizziness
  • Diverticulosis, stomach cramps, bloating, loss of appetite, and gastrointestinal disturbances
  • Muscle fatigue and tremors, sciatic and chest pains, leg cramps, joint pain, and tachycardia
  • Oral health problems, such as bad breath, blisters/sore

ROOT CANAL Treatment in Berkeley Heights, New Jersey

by @holisticdentistry - Jul 28, 2017

WHAT IS A ROOT CANAL?

A Root canal-treated (RCT) or root-filled tooth is one in which the dental nerve, commonly called the pulp, is intentionally removed and is filled with an inert material called gutter perch.

WHAT ARE THE PROS AND CONS OF ROOT CANALS?

The pro of a Root canal is obvious: the painful or dead tooth is treated and extraction is avoided. But we must ask two key questions before starting a root canal.

  • Can the tooth be restored?
  • Can a predictable RCT be performed, or are there risks for a poor result?

 

 

Research has found four major causes of root canal failure:

  • Tooth or root fracture
  • Infections including bacteria (primarily streptococcus vocalist, etc), viruses, and fungus (Candida, etc).
  • The body’s reaction to root canal materials, microorganisms, and cements which inadvertently are pushed past the tooth into the bone.
  • Cysts

Root canal failure, an issue of systemic proportion, remains a little understood and hotly debated subject.

Professional Pediatric Dental Treatments | Holistic Dentistry NJ - Dr Memoli

by @holisticdentistry - Jul 14, 2017

Pediatric tooth decay is on the rise. Some research suggests that systemic causes—including radiation exposure, hormonal abnormalities, and foreign proteins in food—are to blame. Hypo generalization, caused mainly by a diet inadequate in minerals, increases a child’s susceptibility to decay. The systemic theory of decay suggests that other factors become relevant only after hypo generalization has begun.

 

 

Tooth decay in children falls into distinct categories:

  • Baby teeth versus adult teeth
  • Anterior (front) vs. posterior (back) tooth patterns
  • Contract-lateral tooth patterns
  • Decay clustering
